Paris Fashion Week Men’s Spring/Summer 2023 featured a number of standout presentations from both emerging and established brands. Individually, each collection explored a specific theme, from the nature-inspired romance of Kim Jones’ Dior to the collegiate undertones of Nigo’s KENZO. Seen together, the SS23 shows highlighted the adventurous optimism felt by designers around the world as travel, nightlife and culture at large returned on a global scale.

Here, backstage shots from the SS23 season moments before they made their runway debut, as captured by Jason Renaud and Alex Dobé.
